Sophie Hill brings her Postcardwall to Vegas Gallery, showing her collection and texts alongside selected artworks.
Postcardwall is an art blog inspired by postcards. Taken from contemporary exhibitions as well as historical collections, each postcard is written about in order to promote and remember both fleeting and permanent displays.
Begun in 2009 by Sophie Hill, there are now over 300 postcards ‘on the wall’ and all will be exhibited along with their ‘blurb’ in an exhibition that is just as much about words as it is about art.
With postcardwall’s aim of creating a platform for all kinds of art, the postcards come from a range of exhibitions and galleries — from MA graduate shows to institutions such as the National Gallery – with their words amounting to over 70,000 of art history and contemporary criticism. Words are added not to judge, but to elaborate and provoke further interest and discovery.
For this show at Vegas Gallery, postcardwall will be picking a handful of artists ‘on the wall’ for exhibition, showing new artwork alongside the documenting postcards. Postcardwall aims to demonstrate the wealth of accessible art and this is a rare opportunity to exhibit new work alongside the remembered image.
